    Text Size: A A A

    The International Symposium on Edible & Medical Plant Resources and the Bioactive Ingredients, which is supported and launched by Xinjiang Technical Institute of Physics and Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences, is held every two years. It is faced to scientists who study on edible & medical plant resources around the world. The 5th International Symposium on Edible & Medical Plant Resources and the Bioactive Ingredients (ISEPR 2016) will be held on November 4th to 7th 2016, in Shenzhen, China. The goal of ISEPR 2016 is to provide an opportunity to exchange achievements about resources, cultivations, chemical constituents, bioactivities and medical applications of edible & medical plants. To discuss the hot points and the core problems in the relevant fields, and to foresee the prospect in basic researches and technologies. The latest developments of this field, domestic and abroad, are expected to promote scientific exchanges, cooperation and communications among the scientists around the world.  

    ISEPR 2016 is hosted by Shenzhen University, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, and Xinjiang Technical Institute of Physics and Chemistry; and organized by Shenzhen Key Laboratory of Novel Natural Health Care Products,The State Key Laboratory of Chinese Medicine and Molecular Pharmacology (Incubation) in Shenzhen, Jinan University, Key Laboratory of Plant Resources and Chemistry in Arid Regions of CAS; Central Asian Center of Drug Discovery and Development of CAS. Many scholars around the world will be invited to give the special presentation on the topic of edible and medicinal plants.
